Abstract:

This paper examines the sigma-convergence of regional household incomes in the UK and finds support for the idea that regions in the UK have, in the recent past, tended to diverge during booms and converge during slumps. A new way of presenting the change in the distribution of regional incomes is offered. The results are extended to the consideration of movements in the higher moments of the underlying distributions.
